I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4074 laptop with 1GB of memory; everything else is as it came out of the box. The past few weeks I've been having trouble with a background process, svchost.exe. Looking at my task manager, there are several instances of svchost.exe, but one of them crashes, forcing me to restart my laptop. This crash doesn't seem to coincide with any particular program or action on my part.
I spoke with both Microsoft and Toshiba, and both said to simply run a system recovery. Obviously, I'm trying to avoid having to do this, as it entails a lot of work to get things back to normal.
Anyone else having this problem? I've looked online for this problem (and a possible solution), to no avail.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
The error reads like this (taken from the event viewer):
Faulting application svchost.exe, version 5.1.2600.2180, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x00000000.
